Ketchikan: Pilot program would aid struggling students

Posted: Sunday, March 17, 2002

The Ketchikan School Board is considering a pilot program for struggling middle school students.

The STAR program would provide a self-contained classroom for students who are more than a year behind or are failing the basic classes. The classroom would have one teacher for up to 20 students to teach remedial reading, writing, math and social studies.

The students would remain in the classroom for about three class periods, and would attend other classes such as physical education, music and science.

The school district said the program would target students who have found it difficult to work in a traditional middle school setting. Each student would receive a more individualized curriculum integrating different education programs.
